With Al Kilgore and Jack McCabe at the first international Sons of the Desert convention in Chicago, 1978. We did a Laurel & Hardy book too, with a different focus. Some called it "The Bible." We never did. Nevertheless, like they say in the ads, "Accept no substitute." If Messrs. Kilgore and McCabe were here to say so, doubtless they would both heartily endorse the revised edition of FROM THE FORTIES FORWARD. Photo courtesy Richard W. Bann.
